Paul Kuharsky reported earlier today that Frank Wycheck has died. He was 52 years old. It happened at his home in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Here is a statement from his family via PaulKuharsky.com:
“At this time, it appears Frank Wycheck fell inside his Chattanooga, TN home and hit his head on Saturday morning. He was found unresponsive that afternoon. Wycheck moved to Chattanooga,TN this past summer to be closer to his family. He leaves behind two adult daughters, Deanna and Madison, both married, and three grandchildren - Leo, Stevie and August.”
Wycheck was one of the leaders on the Titans’ team that won the AFC and went to the Super Bowl in 1999. He was a great tight end and was great in the community. After his playing career he was on a morning sports talk radio show for a long time. He was also on the Titans Radio broadcast for a few years as the color commentator alongside Mike Keith. He was really good in both of those roles.
Wycheck finished his playing career with 505 catches for 5,126 yards and 28 receiving touchdowns.
